“The Hometown Heroes,” the Columbus Clippers greeted the Syracuse Chiefs rather rudely Saturday night at Huntington Park, with a 13-2 blasting in series opener. Jordan Brown drove in a career-high 6 runs and went 2 for 4 with his first double of 2010.

Jeanmar Gomez’ outing on the pitcher’s mound may have taken a backseat due to the offensive explosion for Columbus, but the Venezuelan right hander threw the ball effectively, going six innings and allowing just two runs on six hits.

The Clippers drew first blood early in the game with an RBI single from Wes Hodges and Jordan Brown’s first RBI of the game from a sacrifice fly. Syracuse received a solo home run from Chris Duncan, brother of Clipper Shelley Duncan to make it 2-1. That was as close as the game would get.

Speaking of Chris Duncan. It’s amazing how much his career has changed. A regular in the St. Louis Cardinals lineup for years until mid-season 2009. He was traded to Boston and now he is in the minor leagues with the Washington Nationals.

Columbus poured on four runs in both the 5th and 6th innings and scored three more times in the 7th.

Saturday’s win moves the Clippers to 15-9 and gives them a 2-game lead in the West Division of the International League over arch-rival Toledo.
